breakingdawn23.jpgAcademy Award-winning director Bill Condon will direct the fourth Stephenie Meyer vampire adaptation, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.

Blast Magazine has more about the deal. The director has long and varied resume, directing the musical Dreamgirls, writing the Oscar-winning screenplay for Gods and Monsters, and writing/directing the biopic Kinsey, and finally, directing the horror movie Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh.

Summit Entertainment president of production and acquisitions Erik Feig had this statement: “Bringing Stephenie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn to the screen requires a graceful and intelligent hand, and we believe Bill Condon is exactly the right steward, having shown equal and abundant talents of immense creativity and subtle sensitivity.”
